Re: cut-and-paste


I don't seem to have a /dev/gmpdata.  Can you give me an LS on it so I
can do a mknod?

I turned off GPM, set my laptop to use /dev/psaux and a ps2 type.
I told it to use Emulate3Buttons, but when I try to hit both buttons
so I can paste it treats it as a 3rd click of the first button.

Thoughts?  This is driving me crazy now.
